yes, we remember, maryann. it wasn't EXACTLY as you say, but yes, we know. we were funning him a bit. he has no sense of humor and it took off in the wrong direction VERY quickly.
all i said was "call me old fashioned, but give me drugs". and this is what i truely believe. my dad owned a "corner drug store" when i was a kid. if i have a belly ache, pepto, a headache, advil, an itch, benedryl, and they rarely fail me.
the only herbal i use is kava kava. i did not have good experiences with others.
i hope you & he work it out. good luck.
